Tigers top Twins 4-3 on 9th-inning sac fly


J.D. Martinez's ninth-inning sacrifice fly scored Torii Hunter with the winning run and the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 4-3 Sunday.


Hunter led off the ninth with a single off Casey Fein, and Miguel Cabrera rifled a line drive that almost knocked over shortstop Dany Santana as he made a leaping catch.


Victor Martinez then hit a fly ball to the right-field wall, and Oswaldo Arcia dropped it for an error. That put runners on the corners, and J.D. Martinez followed with a fly to medium-depth center. Hunter never hesitated, and scored easily when Sam Fuld's throw was badly off line.


Joe Nathan pitched a scoreless ninth.
